How to Convert Milliliters to Ounces

Scales are used to measure weight

To convert a milliliter measurement to an ounce measurement, divide the volume multiplied by the density of the ingredient or material by 28.349523.

You can use this simple formula to convert:

ounces = milliliters × ingredient density28.349523

Thus, the volume in ounces is equal to the milliliters times the density of the ingredient or material divided by 28.349523.

For example, here's how to convert 5 milliliters to ounces for an ingredient with a density of 0.7 g/mL.
5 ml = 5 × 0.728.349523 = 0.123458866824 oz

Milliliters and ounces are both commonly used to measure cooking ingredients.

For cooking applications, most chefs suggest measuring dry ingredients by weight rather than volume to improve accuracy in the measurements.[1] The density of dry ingredients can vary for a variety of reasons, such as compaction.

The best way to ensure an accurate conversion is to use a scale. When a scale is not available, a calculator like the one above is a good way to estimate the volume to weight conversion.

Milliliters

The milliliter is a unit of volume equal to 1 cubic centimeter, 1/1,000 of a liter, or about 0.061 cubic inches.[2]

The milliliter is an SI unit of volume in the metric system. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for 10-3. A milliliter is sometimes also referred to as a millilitre. Milliliters can be abbreviated as ml, and are also sometimes abbreviated as mL or mℓ. For example, 1 milliliter can be written as 1 ml, 1 mL, or 1 mℓ.

Milliliters are sometimes expressed using the abbreviation cc for medical dosage, which is the abbreviation for the cubic centimeter.

Ounces

One ounce is a unit of mass/weight equal to 1/16 of a pound. The common ounce should not be confused with the troy ounce, which is equal to 1/12 of a troy pound.[3]

The ounce is a US customary and imperial unit of weight. Ounces can be abbreviated as oz; for example, 1 ounce can be written as 1 oz.
